"I'll just bet she won't beat me oat on jarred cherries next year, so she won't." This from a Gettysburg woman when she discovered her failure to win one of the awards. Two things were accomplished by Gettysburg's second annual Farmers" Day, the one the renewing of acquaintances among the people of the county; the other the arousing of a healthy rivalry among farmers and housewives, stimulating them to extra endeavor. The two overheard remarks were only indications of these pleasant features of Saturday's fair and all about town an observant on-look- I er could see many little informal re[ unions and just as many competitors who were looking with critical eye upon their own exhibits and those of their neighbors. Merchants and others say that, in spite of the gloomy weather conditions, this year's Farmers' Day brought hundreds more people to town than the original event of 1912. Trains brought many to town in the morning bat the real crowd did not arrive until about one o'clock in the afternoon and from that on until four or ave o'clock the streets were crowded, while some of the stores had so many visitors that moving about was almost an impossibility. And it was a happy crowd throughout- If it started to rain, up went the umbrellas, that was all. and the spirits of the farmers were jast as good as though the sun had been shining brigh'cly all day long. The exhibits were more numerous and fully as good as last year.

The displays of preserves and canned goods and of butter -were all most excellent and the exhibits of fancy work, quilts, quaint dresses and hats were fully as interesting as ever. There was keen rivalry among all the exhibitors and the judges had a big task on their hands to pick out the best from assortments containing so many almost perfect products. The entertainment features of the day alone were marred by the rain- There were several band concerts in the afternoon by the Gettysburg and College bands but both had to be curtailed on account of the rain. The students" parade was not so gay as i would have been had smiling skies allowed them to bring out their banners and pennants, and the weather kept down the automobile parade TO a mere handful. The large six cylinder Pullman of C. Wm. Beales, decorated appropriately -with corn fodder, captured the S10 prize for the best decorated ear and the little bicycle wheeled road- j ster "from coast to coast'", entered by the National Garage won the S5 prize for the most comical car. Prof. Bristol's horse and pony show jgave two exhibitions on the Square that delighted all who were able to see them. Failure to handle the crowd kept hundreds from getting a glimpse of the performance, the more fortunate crowding close to the enclosure and shutting out all view from women and children on the sidewalks. O. I. M. Stine brought down his big load of people from Fairneld and vicinity, bringing in sixty one on the one wagon. He received the $8 prize offered by A. H. Butt for the man who would bring in the largest number of persons- Emarruel Smith, of town, had his own individual Farmers' Day exhibit on the Square and showed a prettily arranged lot of fruits, vegetables and flowers that won him much praise from the hundreds who saw it. Mr. Smith takes great pride in his garden and both last year and this was able to present a very creditable exhibit. , The races in the Square provoked the usual amount of merriment and the youngsters -went after the prizes with vigor. The freak premium offers aroused much interest and the babies were entered in large numbers for the various rewards that were given to the more fortunate ones. In every way the day was a thorough success and renewed the suggestion made last year that the town should have more than s one- day event out of Farmers" Day and that, with races and other attractions, a small fair -would be a paying proposition. Battling with a fast eleven that weighed fifteen pounds to the man heavier than the boys from the local college, Gettysburg's foot ball team went down to defeat to Munlenberg on Xixon Field Saturday afternoon by the score of 20 to 6. Muhlenberg came here with the reputation of having one of She strongest teams in the history of that institution and they fully lived up to their reputation. The eleven is composed of seasoned players, heavy and fast, and those who witnessed the contest were fully aware of the great odds against which Gettysburg .was fighting. That the score was not larger was due entirely to the plucky fight that Gettysburg made and the stubborn defense aut at) by the wearers of the orange and blue. Muhlenberg kicked of? but soon recovered the ball. Several fumbles which Gettysburg recovered and a Song run by Hoar took the ball to Muhlen.berg's thirty yard line from where a placement kick was attempted but failed by a few inches. The AHentown '"boys" then started down the field and by short line gains d several end runs carried it over Tor the first touchdown- The goal was missed. In the second period Muhlen- " erg again worked the ball to the fifteen yard line where Mehafne intercepted a forward pass and dashed away from the entire Muhlenberg team for an eighty five yard run which ve Gettysburg their only score. Scheffer clipped off thirty yards more a moment after the next kick-off but the half was over as he fell. Muhlenfaerg scored a touchdown in each of the last two periods, resorting co double passes and several finely executed forward passe^ Good end runs were responsible for long-, gains and their machine was too powerful for che local beys who put up a fine, though losing, fight.
